UPDATED: Up Against Deadline, State Legislature Changes Washington's Deadly Force Law


So we change "malice" to "good faith what another officer would do".

Bottom line, the reason most people get shot isn't because of "malice" it is because:

1) they fail to follow police instructions during a stop or arrest in which the officer feels (in good faith) at risk.

2) the perpetrator does something stupid like reaches in the glove box when instructed to show their hands.

3) Or....as in the latest case, the individual advances on officers with knifes after being advised to drop the knifes.
